Solana Beach Library to hold special Friends Night Out event

On Tuesday, Feb. 8 at 6:30 p.m., the Friends of the Solana Beach Library invite the public to its Friends Night Out event which is presented in honor of “Valentines’ Day.” Dr. Hagop Akiskal, M.D., will discuss “The Chemistry of Romantic Love.”

What do romantic love, obsessions, and melancholy have in common? Dr. Akiskal will demonstrate that this question is not just the domain of poets and musicians, but is also related to complex brain chemistry involving a number of neurotransmitters, homones, and peptides.

Hagop Akiskal, M.D. is distinguished professor of psychiatry and director of the International Mood Center at UCSD. He is also editor-in-chief of the Journal of Affective Disorders. He has pioneered the study of mood disorders in out-patient settings and has won numerous awards for his work on understanding and redefining illnesses such as depression and bipolar disorders. His work has also lead to the Ig-Nobel prize winning research on the “Chemistry of Romantic Love”. The Ig-Nobel prizes are organized by the Annals of Improbably Research, are distributed by Nobel Prize winners, and are designed to celebrate research that “makes people laugh and makes them think.”

This event is free to the public and will be held at the Solana Beach Library, 157 Stevens Avenue in Solana Beach (858-755-1404).
